I recall the days when JPG and GIF were competing graphics formats roughly on par — before animated GIFs won the internet — so it was natural to distinguish them using the “soft G” vs. “hard G” convention.
Well argued, Donnie, I’ve been in the hard G GIF camp since the 90s so no issue there. It’s okay to take a hard stand, pun intended, as long as you give a tip of the hat to the 30%. PS: great points, Katy Preen & Natasha Millikan.
I’m curious where you stand on the pronunciation of biopic — I posted about this basket case of a portmanteau recently.
